Energy efficiency

Using less energy by increasing efficiency is often the fastest way to reduce emissions; these trainings spread over six modules will help you learn how to do it.

Getting started with energy management

  • Learn about the preliminary steps to stand up an effective energy management program, such as setting goals, getting buy-in, planning, budgeting, and executing energy efficiency projects. This module is designed to be accessible to anyone, without an advanced sustainability or energy management background. The intention is to help a corporate sustainability, facilities, finance or executive audience understand the basic process to design and implement an energy reduction strategy.

Stakeholder engagement

  • Learn how to identify and engage key stakeholders to gain support for your energy efficiency initiatives. Stakeholder engagement is not a one-time event. In order to make a successful energy efficiency project, maintaining stakeholder support, commitment, and collaboration must be woven throughout the energy efficiency planning and implementation process. This module will help you engage stakeholders across the enterprise critical to successful energy efficiency integration.

Roadmap development

  • Learn how to prioritize, plan, and implement improvements. After identifying potential energy efficiency opportunities within your organization, an implementation roadmap will help provide a clear plan to achieve program targets while creating transparency for stakeholders to track progress and key milestones.

  • Roadmap development module

Business case development

  • Learn how to make the business case to internal stakeholders from a financial perspective. After completing an implementation roadmap, the next step is to develop a business case that summarizes the benefits and potential costs for new energy efficiency measures. A well-developed business case will help provide clarity to upper management on the importance of energy efficiency and can help secure approval and funding for your initiatives.

Energy efficiency in action

  • Learn the nuts and bolts of ensuring the energy conservation measures are installed correctly and all follow up is planned accordingly. After developing a strong business case and received approval, you are now ready to move forward with selecting vendors, installing your energy efficiency project, and monitoring improvements. Following best practices in this module for project planning and implementation can optimize savings and other project benefits, reduce costs, mitigate project risks, and facilitate evaluation of project performance.
